    In my post, I wrote "the Chouffe"...
    What I meant was of course "La Chouffe".

    It's my session beer whenever I go to my headquarters/main watering hole here in Brussels.

    It's kind of cop out I suppose, but I'm going with Trappist Westvleteren 12. Tried it for the first time 2 weeks ago and I can say that it's certainly delicious. I have another bottle in the fridge that'll be opened this weekend (I'm excited). Though after this I'll have to go to belgium to get to try it again.

    I have had only ONE of those in my life and I remember it as quite an extraordinary experience...

    By the way, I recently heard that the monks lacked funds to renovate the monastery (some parts are crumbling down from sheer age). That could mean that they'll have to produce more of they beers in the near future.

    La Chouffre

    I enjoyed this beer While on the other side of the world in New Zealand. a long boat ride but I enjoyed it all lthe same, one of the most interesting beers I had while there was a Thomas Hardy's ale which was older than I, 27 years aged compared to my 24.

    What I've learned from this thread is you can not have a constant favorite. Any number of factors can change the idea of a favorite. Last night my wife started to talk about Christmas, here's where the factors come in, and I was reminded of New Belgiums seasonal 2 Below. That right now, till the factors change, is my favorite.

    I'll post here again when the factors change.

    Thumbs up Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale: So Good!

    Despite having drank a wide variety of beers over the years, I was always against pumpkin beer. I never enjoyed eating pumpkin seeds, wasn't a big fan of pumpkin pie, carving pumpkins grossed me out and I just could not see the allure of enjoying a beer flavored with pumpkins.

    However, I must first say that Pumpkin beer has moved into the top 3 spots of seasonal beers for me (Just about any Octoberfest still holding onto the lead).

    I first tried pumpkin ale at Boston Beer works, but I have to say that Smuttynose's Pumpkin Ale is the best I have had so far.

    For those who have not tried this beer, please do so before knocking it. For those who have, I hope you will at least agree that it is an interesting beer with a very flavorful finish!

    If you want to know what is the best beer in the world (I mean best to you) then ask yourself what beer you would choose if you could only drink one particular beer the rest of your life. Ofcourse this would change depending on your mood and the time of the year. If I had to make a decision right now I would say Lagunitas IPA Maxamus. It's strong enough for winter and refreshing enough for summer. Lee

    I wonder if one was left to only drink a Rodenbach grand cru for the rest of the days if it would become mundane over time.

    In all reality a silly question should be reworded as the best beer for you this week or month, our palates continuaally evolve and we continue to search and discover. How can one say this is the best beer without having tried them all? Maybe next Tuesday you will come across a beer that you enjoy more than your current favorite.

    In a word, yes. I'm sure everyone has had a favorite beer that they couldn't get enough of -- then found out they really could. To new member Rest's point, it is like picking a favorite child.

    I don't know, It is a mighty fine brew.

    But I would never want to be limited to Just one brew forever.

    I found Scullers IPA to be a superior brew, citrusy, complex, and unfortunately, no longer available...please start brewing again!!
